Shingon: Japanese Esoteric Buddhism (Used)
by Yamasaki, Taiko
Publisher: Shingon Buddhist International Institute
Binding: Hardcover with dust jacket
Book ID: 9781888370003, 1888370009
Shingon: Japanese Esoteric Buddhism is the first comprehensive study of the subject to appear in any Western language. This book traces the history of the school from its mysterious origins in India and describes the remarkable men who brought the teachings to China and Japan in the eighth and ninth centuries, who translated the texts, and who carried the initiatic chain of teaching. It discusses the Metaphysical doctrines of Shingon, its founding scriptures, and its views on levels of consciousness and stages of samadhi. And it covers the whole range of Shingon meditations and exercises --- such as mudras, incantations, and visualizations of deities and symbolic forms -- hitherto virtually unknown in the west.
Taiko Yamasaki, the author, is abbot of Jokoin Temple in Kobe, Japan, and Dean of the Department of Esoteric Instruction at Shuchi-in University in Kyoto, Japan. He is one of the worlds recognized experts in Ajikan and other forms of Meditation.
